, look, if the president's re-ele re-elected, we're going to have $20 trillion in debt if four years and america is going to be closer to the economic crisis you're seeing in europe. if i'm elected, we're going to get america on track to a balanced budget. the president's re-elected, you're going to cut medicare by $716 billion to pay for obamacare. if i'm re-elected -- excuse me, if i'm elected -- [ cheers and applause ] let me strike that. when i'm elected -- [ cheers and applause ] we're going restore that funding to medicare and also we're going to repeal and replace obamacare so your premiums don't go up by $2,500 a year. if the president's re-elected, i don't care how much he talks about liking all of the above when it comes to energy, because i know what he means by all of the above. he means all the energy that comes from above the ground, all right? wind and solar. i like wind and sew olar too. but i also like the energy that comes from below the ground. oil, coal, and gas. we'll get it from my administration. i can also tell you this. if the president were to be re-elected,

they had locked down long ago. we're very confident that it can actually be a part of our ele electoral coalition. >> if pennsylvania was so important, why not make it a state that he made a play for throughout the campaign? >> you have to go when it matters. i think in the last few weeks, we've seen pennsylvania -- the polls there tighten. and it became a tremendous opportunity. i think it's going to be part of 270 and beyond if we continue to do what we've been doing this last few weeks, which is getting out the message that the governor has a better course for america when it comes to fixing the kpi and putting the country back on track and i think that it's going to be really important part of our efforts to turn out many swing voters in those key areas around that state so that we can win it tonight. >> and republicans, no doubt, are energized this electorate. if you look at the battleground states in the early vote, the democrats are ahead in terms of the early vote, except in the state of colorado, where the republicans appear to be ahead there. is that a problem for governor rom
